MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Police have made a second arrest following a police-involved shooting at the Winn-Dixie on the corner of Government and Catherine streets.
Mobile police spokesperson Ashley Rains said 18-year-old Collier Kirksey was an employee at the Winn-Dixie.
She said police believe he was the person who helped 18-year-old Jakieth Harrison and 21-year-old Ronald Crear get into the store after hours in an attempted robbery.
"He picked the time, the place, where to put the employees, how to enter the store," said Rains.
Rains said Kirksey was inside the store during the robbery and acted as a victim. Police said he played along and became another hostage.
"(He) actually acted as a victim as police were processing the scene, stayed with the other employees," she said.
Authorities believe a safe inside the store was the intended target for the suspects.
Authorities said Kirksey will be charged with five counts of attempted murder and one count of first degree robbery, the same charges Harrison faces.
Harrison was arrested shortly after the robbery.
"The events began because of Mr. Kirksey's involvement. He was the one that put the robbery in progress. Therefore, he is also responsible for the five officers who the attempted murders were against," said Rains.
Although police said the suspects shot at five officers, Officer Chad Wynne was hit and had to be rushed to USA Medical Center.
Police said he remains in critical condition, but seem optimistic about his recovery.
"Officer Wynne is improving rapidly. He is doing very well. He of course has a long road ahead of him, but was very excited to report that he continues to recover and does better day to day," said Rains.
The second suspect, Crear, was also shot. He was taken to USA Medical Center to be treated, where he remains as of now.
Police said once he is released, he will face the same charges as Harrison and Kirksey.
